John Droney

John Droney is a Connecticut politician and lawyer. He is the senior partner of Levy & Droney, a large law firm based in Farmington, Connecticut.


A native of West Hartford, Connecticut, Droney is a graduate of College of the Holy Cross and the University of Connecticut School of Law. He is former Chairman of the Connecticut Democratic State Central Committee and was a member of the Democratic National Committee. He was co-chair of the Bill Clinton-Al Gore campaign in Connecticut. Droney has usually been aligned with more conservative Connecticut Democrats such as former Governor William O'Neill.

In 2006 Droney was a vocal supporter of the re-election of his political ally, Senator Joe Lieberman. Early in the year he publicly urged Lieberman to forgo a Democratic party primary and seek reelection as an independent. Droney's strategy was vindicated when after Lieberman lost the primary to Ned Lamont, Lieberman won re-election as an independent candidate.

His brother, Christopher F. Droney, is a U.S. District Court judge for the District of Connecticut.
